Re: Tell me how you told *less than thrilled* parents

Like some PP have mentioned, send a cute announcement or something. When pg #3, I took a video of the midwife getting a heartbeat, and my older two (young at the time) saying 'It's the baby!' and sent it to my mom in an email. Then she was able to call whenever she was ready. Luckily she was supportive, if surprised.

She was understandably unsupportive of my first. We were unmarried. We tried to project happiness about it, so we said 'We have some great news to share!' (she thought we were announcing that we'd eloped.). But we said we were pregnant and her initial response was... 'I'm not sure that's great news.' Nice, huh?
